    The USB port can be found behind the tower and front of the tower if the manufacturers have that fixed to the tower.
    You can try to insert the USB into the back and front of the tower because u would get 3-4 usb por behind the towers.
    Check with other USB ports.

How important is the data?
You may want to take it to a repair shop if is her doctoral dissertation, if not you can try to fix it yourself.
First , you will have to dissassemble it to expose the board and connector.
Check to see it the board is cracked.
If not , just try to resolder the connector (silver part) back to the board.
Of course , examine the connector first to verify it is in good shape, no broken pins , etc.
It should work at that point , if not , or the board is cracked you will need to find the same make and model USB stick (try ebay) and replace the chip with the data on it , the big square or rectangular one, with the one from the donor drive.
The soldering for that is a bit more daunting but can be done with some inexpensive parts from your local radio shack. Just remember never to leave the iron on the board for more than 5 seconds. Good luck.

How to restore delected files from my usb flash drive


Hi, Even I faced the same problem. I have deleted some of the PDF file from my pen drive and luckily I could get all the files from it. I used Yodot File Recovery software and with the assistance of this software I was able to get all the PDF files. Download free trial version of the software if you want to know how to recover a PDF file. It recovers not only PDF file but also all the files present in the drive.

My usb stick needs to be formatted for pc but i cant


you can try format recovery software like asoftech data recovery. You can see

It tells the steps how to perform format recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the usb drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the usb drive and recover your files.

Broken usb flash drive


The data is not destroyed, but it will be tricky to fix. I would suggest you find a local computer tech who is really good soldering tiny stuff. Or go to a Radio/TV repair shop. I think it will be possible to re-connect the wires and make it work.
